What’s worse than finding a worm in your apple?
Finding half a worm in your apple!
What Christmas song was written on a hot summer day by two songwriters who were hoping that wintry thoughts would cool them off?
“The Christmas Song,” popularly known as “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire.” It was written in 1945 by Mel Tormé and Bob Wells.
(I will sing this song forever if it would help with the steambath outside today in IL!)

Peter Scolari starred as the father in the TV version of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. Throughout the series, (1997–2000) run, there’s a running joke between the show’s characters. The joke: No one can remember the name of the “other guy” from the 1980s Tom Hanks sitcom Bosom Buddies. That other guy: Peter Scolari.
(I have always thought that Peter Scolari was every bit as good as Tom Hanks - but for some reason, he never seemed to hit it big.)
In its debut season, Joe Millionaire was the #2 ranked show. By season two, it had dropped to #111.
